Now this is the way to sell a car! This guy makes we want this car (67 442) even more than I ordinarily do. I love it. The line where he says "If I was to get behind the wheel of a Ferrari today, I don't think I'd be even as slightly mildly concerned about the well being of that car as of this car because this is a car we couldn't replicate to save our lives" : YouTube- 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442--Chicago Cars Direct HD

You really can't argue with the man.

Back in 1968 I drove one for about a week, it was a loner while my stepfather's '68 Supreme coupe was in for repairs. I really liked it, much prefered it to the '68 body style and it drove with a more coordinated feel than the newer model. I remember thinking "I wonder if they'd take the '68 in an even trade for a '67." I still wouldn't mind having one, and envy you, Destroyer, your convertible!

I still wouldn't mind having one, and envy you, Destroyer, your convertible!I've had a '66 Cutlass, 2 '67 Cutlasses, '75 Cutlass and 3 '78-87 Cutlasses and I just am in love with the '67 body style. I never cared for the '68-'72 models. As a matter of fact, I'd prefer a '73 442 over the '68-'72 models. I drive my '67 vert to the beach almost every morning to go for a walk with the wife before I go to work. You can't imagine how many thumbs up and comments I get during that 2 mile commute, probably more than I would get in a Ferrari. I'm on the lookout for a '67 442 coupe like the one in the youtube video. My wife wants a classic car too so I'll find one soon. I just bought a '99 Eldorado for her so that will buy me some time to find the right '67 Cutlass or 442 coupe for her :thumbsup:. I would have loved this one, LT1 with 6 speed but it is sold: YouTube- 1967 Oldsmobile Pro Touring -- FOR SALE!!! -- Call 303.751.0704

It's not leather - it is vinyl seating. Only the 98 & the Toronado offered leather (at extra cost).

Yes, it's almost too nice to use. It belongs in a showroom, to be admired, not to be driven.

My all time favorite Oldsmobile, next to the '66-'67 Toronados, was the 1965 Starfire convertible. The 1965, last year for the convertible, took the great lines of that year's Oldsmobiles and refined them into a really great looking clean design that I think has stood the test of time. Unfortunately the Starfires were reaching the end of their run and their final year of 1966 only had a over embellished coupe as the Starfire's swan song. I remember seeing a brand new white '65 convertible going down Langdon Street in Madison, Wisconsin and wishing it were mine!

Sandy you right, it has that cheap ass vinyl. My '67 vert has the original vinyl interior that simply won't die. It needs a new covers so the colors will match. I love these cars...............
